We are getting on into the year now, and I know that a lot of people are starting to crap out when it comes to their New Year’s resolutions of losing weight. A surefire way to get yourself interested in working out again is to buy a new gadget.
I know, it seems like you shouldn’t have to do that to get healthy, but you know I’m right. Who doesn’t want to play with a new toy? If you are looking for a gadget to up your workout game, then check out some of these ideas.
If you haven’t heard about Fitbit yet, it is a pretty popular gadget for those that are trying to drop pounds. It was a hot ticket item at Christmas, but if you haven’t gotten one yet, you might reconsider it.
The original Fitbit wraps around your arm and looks like a rubber watch. It tracks your steps, movements, and heart rate. This gives you a good idea of how much you move in a day. Since you are tracking your movements, you can know how far off from your goal you are.
While this isn’t necessarily a gadget that you can use for working out, it is designed to help you lose weight. Did you know if you eat slower, you will consume fewer calories? This is a simple way to drop pounds and move better when you exercise.
The fork vibrates if you are eating too fast. It gives you the signal to slow down a bit.
As you eat, it tracks the information it gathers and you can upload it. It will then coach you on your eating habits.
Exercising without music or something to distract your mind is just about torture. Listening to something can make your workout go so much smoother and seem a lot more enjoyable.
The problem with listening to anything while you are active is that the cord gets in the way. Not so with wireless headphones. Yurbuds wrap around the back of your neck so that it stays in place while you run, walk, or workout at the gym.
For those that love to run, the Sensoria Smart sock is a good investment. It tracks the way you run. From the data, you will know how well you are running and give you tips on how to improve your form.
Runners often suffer injuries because they do not run properly. The sock has pressure signals in the ankle and will track your style. Compression socks for running are really a no brainer.
Don’t worry, the sock is washable. That could get a little gross if it wasn’t.
With these simple fitness gadgets, you are sure to see the results you are looking for. It might be just what you need to get back on track.
